Pre-Departure Orientations – Asia

Penn State Global will collaborate with Chinese Students and Scholars Association (CSSA), Chinese Undergraduate Students Association (CUSA) and Taiwanese American Student Association (TASA) at Penn State to offer Pre-Departure Orientations to new students who have been accepted and have paid their acceptance fee. The Pre-Departure Orientation provides an opportunity for future students and their families to meet other Penn State students, and university staff, and to learn important information about Penn State, college life, and regulations before traveling to the United States.


A Pre-Departure Orientation will be offered in Shanghai and Taipei in summer 2023. Each student may choose one location and can register themselves and one (1) guest. Attending the orientation with family is a great way to build a foundation for success at Penn State. Please refer to the below dates and locations of the available sessions in summer 2023 and register for Pre-Departure Orientation.
